The family of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel have asked mourners to wear a “splash of pink” to her funeral.
The service will take place at St Margaret Mary’s, the church next to her school, in Dovecot, Liverpool, on September 15, according to a notice posted on the website of Debbie Bennett Funeral Directors on Friday.
The notice says: “Olivia will be sadly missed by all her family and friends.
“Funeral Mass at St Margaret Mary’s Church, Pilch Lane, Dovecot on Thursday 15th September at 11am, followed by a Private Burial.”
“Family requested everyone to wear a splash of pink,” it added.
Olivia died after she was shot in her home when a gunman chased convicted burglar Joseph Nee into the property at about 10pm.
A post-mortem examination found her medical cause of death was a gunshot wound to the chest.
Her mother Cheryl was also injured and is still receiving treatment for her injuries, police said.
A 36-year-old man from Huyton and a 33-year-old from Dovecot were arrested on suspicion of murder and two counts of attempted murder in relation to Olivia’s death last week and have been released on bail.
